    Wolfenstein 3D changed how we looked at first person games in 1992 and The New Order, while not as big of a step, may be just as important of one for the future of the genre.

    To put it briefly: The New Order deserves a sequel. And to make sure this dream comes true, I can do only one thing: convince you to buy the new Wolfensten game. Perhaps great trailers boosted expectations too high, perhaps fanatical Return to Castle Wolfenstein players won't be as amazed, as I am, but I'm sure of this: all FPS fans will have a great time and after finishing the game they'll want more.

    While the story never reaches the level of Bioshock or Portal 2, Wolfenstein: The New Order is a great experience both narratively and gameplay-wise, and has way more heart than it has any right to.

    Who was expecting such a big Wolfenstein return four years after the previous title? Not many, but MachineGames has developed a very good shooter with mixed gameplay (shoot&stealth), an interesting plot and great characters.

    If you've enjoyed shooters of old, you'll love how freshly packaged this one is.

    Wolfenstein: The New Order is an electric veg-o-matic of FPS gaming bits and pieces set thrown into the hopper and set for puree. It lacks some stuff that we’re sort of gotten used to seeing in our FPS games these days and adds, a thousand collectable widgets aside, not much that we haven’t seen elsewhere before.

    The only thing in the new Wolfenstein that turned out really well is music. Shooting is decent and some weapons give proper sense of power, but developers failed to build an interesting game on these foundations. It has some good moments but none of them lasts long enough to be satisfying. Plus the writing is terrible and the way the game constantly forces all that ‘war is evil!’ preaching and Blazkowicz’s moral dilemmas down your throat is ridiculous. I actually couldn’t decide whether the game is being serious or not. [07/2014, p.56]

The game ran extremely smooth and never once did a stutter occurThough some might disagree, I thought the visuals in this game were stunning. The game ran extremely smooth and never once did a stutter occur that I can recall. Wolfenstein: The New Order's story also stays interesting all throughout with the primary goal to hunt down and kill Death's Head. Characters have lifelike facial animation and emotion. The characters are memorable. Most important to me in this game was the gameplay and I loved it. The gun fighting felt fluid and fierce. I hope Bethesda continues to have interest in Wolfenstein because I do. Expand

    Return to Castle Wolfenstein and Wolfenstein are two great titles and so is Wolfenstein: The New Order. The graphics aren't something uniqueReturn to Castle Wolfenstein and Wolfenstein are two great titles and so is Wolfenstein: The New Order. The graphics aren't something unique but are well done. The Nazi killing is fun. Unlike the other games in the series, The New Order has a really great story. The missions are clever and well designed. The game is fun to replay and I had even more fun replaying with an Enigma code mode. The only thing I didn't liked about the game was the loading times when you die - they are too long for me. Despite that Wolfenstein: The New Order is wonderful first-person shooter and a wonderful addition to the series. From 2 to 6 I give in VERY GOOD 5. Expand

    The game play was refreshing since I actually died many many times on medium difficulty, which is unexpected for an FPS. I have 3 big gripesThe game play was refreshing since I actually died many many times on medium difficulty, which is unexpected for an FPS. I have 3 big gripes with this game. 1. The sneaking algorithm is very rudimentary and makes it way too easy. 2. The random spawning of enemies in closed rooms that appear right in front or behind you to kill you instantly. I don't give credit to any FPS that spawns enemy on top of you, this is just lazy developing. 3. The games graphics does not justify the 50gb install size. It looks decent but not 50gb exceptional. Story wise this games is below average for FPS but I don't really care too much for the story.The game play itself was good. I liked the weapons and the combat system but the spawning of enemies in close proximity really soured the experience. The combat AI is pretty competent, one of the better ones I've seen so props to the developer. Expand

    A 2016 review.

    Sorry but is impossible to play this game... lock at 60fps. The game is very slow with LOTS OF TEARS. If I can play the witcher 3 at 144 (sync) or 180 without sync (at max settings, plus force SSAA) I need to play this game at least at 144hz lock.

    This is a deal break for me.
